applet ----> URL -------> txt file

How can I do to access from an applet to an URL using "URL input stream" and from this URL to a txt file which is in a specific server?

I also need to know a way to read a txt file and extract strings, which are separated by something, for example a ",".

thank you very much

For your way to extract strings you can use the StringTokenizer interface. Here is an example of how that works...

String FullOfColons = new String("My Mom;and I; went to the bank; and put in; a lot of money!); // Actually full of Semi-Colons!

StringTokenizer KillGrammar = new StringTokenizer(FullOfColons, ";", false) // False if you don't want the ; included, true if you do!

String RealSentence = new String();
while( KillGrammar.hasMoreTokens() )
  RealSentence += KillGrammar.nextToken();


StringTokenizer is in java.util.

Hope this gets you atleast started on your solution.
To access a text file , access ot in the same way as you would a html file.
just make sure that you keep the text file in the Documents directory of your server
then access it using the URL.
For example


To parse through a string , refer to jwilcox's comment.
